I fist saw this table almost 10 years ago and it still amazes me. I go back to this every time I need a little inspiration.
Designed by Fletcher Burwell-Taylor Ltd. this is one of the coolest tables ever.
These custom tables range from $50,000-$70,000 and can be used on yachts. Incredible! If I only had a yacht...or $70K to blow on a table...

"The Maybe" is Tilda Swinton sleeping randomly in a glass box at the MoMa. This is performance art? Regardless, she is bad-ass and hey, why not go and take a peek at her snoozing if you're in NY.
"The Maybe" was originally staged by Swinton in 1995, at the Serpentine Gallery in London, in collaboration with the artist Cornelia Parker. Swinton later staged it in Rome and Paris, without Parker.
MoMA Chief Curator at Large Klaus Biesenbach revealed to us that discussions for bringing "The Maybe" to the MoMA started when Swinton was working on another museum project. Back in 2005, she started filming her scenes for the MoMA-Creative Time film installation, Doug Aitken's sleepwalkers, which involved eight films projected on the MoMA's exterior walls (it premiered in 2007). Biesenbach said, "We were sitting in a trailer... and we talked about 'The Maybe,'" and he mentioned to her that the museum wanted to bring back "historic" performance art." The Gothamist
It's unsure how long this will go on for or what days she appears. I guess you should just check in at Moma or twitter to see if she's snoozing.
This only happens in this crazy thing called "performace art"!
